After we set up our little country home and fairy farm, Ella swore she saw a glowing light zoom past it at night! She is so excited to see evidence of fairies each morning. They always leave a little pixie dust behind to let us know they’ve visited. So fun!

Here’s What We Made for our Barnyard Set Up:

  • Hay bales
  • Barn
  • Tire Swing

Here’s What You’ll Need for the Barn Section of this craft:

  • A small birdhouse barn
  • Red paint pen
  • white paint pen
  • moss for the roof
  • natural raffia
  • floral wire
  • an old lego car tire
  • some string

We also had:
(I found these at Michael’s Craft store)

  • A small tractor
  • a weather vein

Instructions:

Haybales:

  • cut a bunch of raffia into strips that are about 2 inches long – bunch them together
  • wrap the floral wire around the raffia on both ends

Barn:

  • I used paint pens to paint a barn birdhouse – The kids also painted birdhouses with paint pens. It’s so nice to have paint pens. Very little mess, and they can really get creative with embellishments
  • we added moss to the roof with a warm glue gun

Tire Swing:

  • I pulled a tire off of one of the kids old toys and tied some string to it
  • we found a twig that had an arm extending out to tie the swing onto

  • 5 medium sized popsicle sticks
